Guitarist John Squire launches an art exhibition which includes the band's early artwork...

Ex-STONE ROSES guitarist JOHN SQUIRE will hold an art exhibition in MANCHESTER next month.

Squire, who held a similar exhibition in the ICA London in February this year, will show pieces including the artwork for the Roses‘ first records, the poster for the band’s infamous Spike Island gig, and sculptures which feature in the Seahorses’ artwork.

Fans of Squire’s work can now buy prints of selected pieces, including ‘Bye Bye Badman’ and ‘Waterfall’, at [url=]johnsquireart.com. Each piece has been signed by Squire.

The exhibition takes place at The Great Northern, Deansgate on May 7-18. Admission for the exhibition is £3.
